I appreciate this article and what it stands for. The fact that more couples are seeking a more civilized process when amidst a divorce is reassuring. It means that using litigation can be an enormous influence in the hostility and negativity within a divorce proceeding. When there are children involved, using ADR as opposed to litigation can create a more peaceful and stable environment for the family. I am glad to see that using ADR is shown to be an effecting tool on keeping relationships between the divorced parties on a friendly level rather than hostile. I hope that ADR continues to be used for other family conflicts as well.
